Front door mats are the very first impression that a guest will have with you and your home! Think of all the homes that you have been to. Chances are likely that you have seen a home doormat at the front entrance to greet you. The front door is the place that you want to make a statement. Depending on your persona, this initial welcoming statement can be either a bold declaration or a more reserved statement. A “Message Mat” can make a unique announcement that is reflective of your personality. On one hand, you can demonstrate your patriotic love for country with a flag-themed red, white, and blue entrance mat, or you can simply greet your guests to your home with a home welcome mat that simply says, “Welcome” on it. A home doormat is a testimonial of your individuality and your home.
Front door mats are gifted with both aesthetic and functional appeal. While most people usually think of only the aesthetic aspect of a home welcome mat, the functional aspect should not be ignored. Front door mats from the Rubber Flooring Experts are typically made using two high quality materials: rubber and coir. When it comes to rubber, we often employ a mix of natural and recycled rubber materials because they offer great durability. Coir is a natural material that is harvested from the husks of coconuts. Both materials are considered eco-friendly as their production contributes to removing hazardous non-biodegradable waste in the environment.
Having a home doormat in place at your front door lowers the risk of slips and falls that can be caused by moisture or loss of traction. Since the type of flooring usually found on the front porch or walkway is made from wood, stone, or concrete, any moisture found on these slippery surfaces can be hazardous. Continue Reading Below
You will be much safer when standing on front door mats that are made using rubber materials. The rubber section of a home welcome mat is usually the part that comes into contact with existing surfaces. This is done by design because rubber possesses a very good level of grip, even against surfaces that are slick with moisture. Rubber front door mats offer an overall superior level of traction for those standing on top of them. This can help ensure a smooth entry into the house without the worry of someone losing his or her footing.
A big benefit of having front door mats is that they help improve cleanliness. Placing a home doormat at the entrance of your home is one of the easiest ways to reduce interior cleaning costs. They do this by acting as a shoe and boot scraper. The scraper qualities of doormats are made possible through the use of either rubber surface textures or the rough fibers of a coir surface, both of which can help remove most of the dirt and debris from the bottom of shoes. Coir is particularly useful for this function thanks to its thick and rough fibers. Front door mats that have coir surfaces are great at flushing out mud, dirt, rocks, sand, and other unwanted debris. Coir surfacing on the mats provides a larger scraping area, making sure that it gets as much outdoor debris off from incoming footwear as possible. By using a solution as simple as a home welcome mat, you are ensuring that the life of your interior flooring surfaces is lengthened.
Our rubber and coir front door mats are extremely durable and weather resistant. Since they are expected to be placed outdoors, weather resistance is simply a must have feature! Harvested from rubber and/or coconut trees, rubber and coir are tough materials that can withstand extreme moisture or heat and still retain their protective qualities. Excess levels of moisture are known to cause the development of mold and mildew, but coir and rubber front door mats prevent these byproducts from forming.
A good home welcome mat requires less maintenance and lasts longer than a doormat made with fabrics or carpet. Our ultra durable doormats are cost-effective accessories for many seasons to come!
